Coronavirus (Covid-19) update 2021
23 April 2021
It’s been a year since our last Coronavirus update, so we wanted to let you know about the changes we have implemented since then.
As for many, Coronavirus procedures have become a normal way of life and something we as a business have managed to adapt to very quickly.
The wellbeing of our colleagues, families and customers, still remains our primary concern. We are doing everything we can as individuals and as a business to keep ourselves and everyone else safe.
We are happy to report that since the pandemic has began, Doornbos has only had one positive case of Coronavirus. Thankfully, this was an isolated incident and was not caught from the workplace. All the correct procedures were followed efficiently to eliminate the spread of the virus.
Since our last COVID-19 update, Doornbos implemented weekly lateral flow testing for all staff. Once a week all staff were asked to take part in weekly lateral flow testing at Splash in Stockton. All staff participated in this until workplace lateral flow testing was introduced. With the lateral flow testing introduced, this allowed our staff who could not work from home, to come to work as normal, rather than previously operating on a split shift pattern.
We began workplace lateral flow testing on Monday 12th April 2021. Staff are required to complete their lateral flow tests before starting work Monday morning and all results are recorded on the Gov.uk website and kept on a separate database. Lateral flow tests will also be distributed to delegates taking part in Water Jetting training and anyone else who will be on site for more than a few hours. We still have our NHS QR code in operation to comply with the Track and Trace policy and everyone coming to site is requested to scan the QR code.
As previously, we still ask all persons not to visit the office if they have had contact with a person who has visited a high risk area during the past 14 days, live with a family member who has visited a high risk area during the past 14 days or has been in contact with any individuals who have tested positive for Coronavirus during the past 14 days. We also ask that any person who has had a fever or persistent cough during the past 7 days does not attend the office. If you are unsure about your symptoms we advise you check the nhs wesbite.
For any more info on our Covid-19 procedures you can watch this short video from our UK Director – James McCullagh.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our staff and everyone coming onto site, for following our Covid-19 procedures. We would not have been able to operate as smoothly as we have been, without your compliance and support. Thank you!
